About Me


World tour : next step India, Nepal and South east Asia


After studying economics in Brazil and UK (I would rather have done a degree on humanitarian/social issues ... never mind...) I started to work on human rights, technology and social projects. I must admit that the time I spent at amnesty international as volunteer was just fantastic..... Human rights is now part of my life... so i went to see the Dalai Lhama and completely fell in love with India, a magic place....

Low budget cultural travel and Spiritual development are my aims now.


1st article human rights:
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Every single person can enrich our experiences on earth

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


To bring the understanding that we are all brothers and sisters living in the same house, our planet.


I have just discovered couchsurfing by the advice of a few friends. I do think couchsurfing is just part of my personality !


I love sharing experiences, talking about traveling, knowing other people's points of view, as nothing is really black or white and all people can add something positive to our experience on earth.
I Love sometimes a good wine or bier and good food, specially Indian (i repeat myself). I am an sportive guy, swimming, cycling, ... and nowadays i do a lot of meditation, I read now boudist books and oriental philosophy.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love low budget movies or author moves that describes the life and experiences of people around the world.(American stile mega budget movies are not my favorites but some are quite good...)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveling, brasil, UK, all european countries, .... I am in love with India now!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach, learn, share: Oriental and esoteric philosophy, life experiences, human rights issues, international politics and economics, etc etc
